For CCIE Emeritus, candidates must just be 10 years as a CCIE but being suspended status along the way will not have a negative impact. At the moment you apply, you could be in active or suspended status. When the candidate is close to approaching the 10 year anniversary period (at nine years and nine months), he or she will receive an email notification with information of their potential eligibility for CCIE Emeritus.

Due to some issues with my email, I missed the deadline for CCIE Emeritus application submission and now Cisco is asking me to either take all three CCIE labs (:)) or I need to take one of the business certification to get my emeritus status reinstated. Cisco Website is saying I can pass 820-427 BTBBSS to recertify but it seems like Pearson Vue is not offering it. Cisco site is recommending two other tests but I rather take one exam instead of taking two exams which each cost $250 and $350 respectively. Please let me know how/where can I take 820-427 exam?
